IMG_5435A very nice vintage double school desk with attached seating for two, thought to be dated around 1930-1940′s … In very nice condition but with the usual school boy or girl scratching and writing on which all adds to the history and charm of these desks… it’s all solid wood and metal construction means it should last many, many more years of use.
